We actually had plenty of players on that team who were not Top 100 recruits, including a starter (Luther). Added to Luther were Calvin Brock, Jack Ingram, and Marcus Arnold who were all non-Top 100 recruits coming out of high school.If curbello lives up to his ranking he will be playing 30+, easy. The other talent on the roster won’t make a difference. This team desperately needs a distributor.
Keep in mind Dee played 35 mins or so as a freshman on a team that had 7 or 8 top 100 players.
Also, for reference, I’m pretty sure every player in the 04/05 team except Fred Nkemdi was a top 100 recruit.
IMO, Illini have a ways to go before theyre too stacked with talent to start worrying ablut minutes.
